Cavani has been linked with a move to Manchester United for some time and suggestions that he could make the switch to Old Trafford this summer have intensified in recent days given his supposedly uncertain position in Paris.

Manchester United will reportedly begin negotiations with Cavani over the weekend as Louis van Gaal seemingly strives to reinforce his goalscoring ranks, and a club record transfer fee of £56 million has been mentioned for this proposed deal.

Cavani, however, has dismissed the assertion that he is unhappy at the Parc des Princes, where he moved only last summer from Napoli, and says he will remain a PSG player until he is told otherwise by the club.

No desire to leave

"I am sure to stay, why would I not? I'm well in Paris, I have a contract with PSG. I'm calm. I'd rather be here. I feel good here,” Cavani said, as reported by L’Equipe.

“As I already said, it does not depend solely on the player's position but also some things that can happen in a club.”

Could be sold regardless

Although Cavani may insist his future is in Paris, the 27-year-old could still be sold before the transfer line as his club endeavour to fall in line with FFP - something they have failed to do in the past, resulting in sanction from UEFA.

PSG are restricted to a €60 million net spend for this transfer window, a fee they have already reached following the acquisition of David Luiz from Chelsea, and they will now be required to sell before they can buy again.

Given the Ligue 1 champions’ supposed pursuit of Angel di Maria, who would come at a cost of a reported €75 million, PSG will have to chop around three marquee names if they are able to get a deal over the line.

AS claim that Cavani is one of the players to have been made available for transfer to fund this push for Di Maria, which will seemingly allow Manchester United to press ahead with a deal and attempt to add the player to an attacking department already boasting Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.
